Sting Buys Battersea

News comes from New York that Sting and Trudie Styler have bought an apartment in the Battersea Power Station development as their new London home. The announcement was made  at a launch party at Canoe Studios in Manhattan last night.  Sat Bal (30 Oct.14) 

The  party was hosted by Battersea Power Station and saw Sting perform for 300 guests.  The aim of the launch was to drive awareness of Battersea’s commercial leasing and residential sales opportunities. The event took place ahead of a global tour which is set to visit everywhere from Dubai to Shanghai, reinforcing the global pull of London.  

 “The exciting development plans for the whole site are a great solution for the regeneration of an iconic London landmark which has been in decay for the last 30 years,” said Trudie Styler. “We are both very pleased to be part of this new community and really look forward to making our London home at the Battersea Power Station."

“The entire 42-acre Battersea Power Station site is now being transformed into a world-class destination, which will gather the best in class operators across the globe to create a unique place of which we can all be proud.  We are now launching Phase 3 of the development, being stunning apartments designed by Gehry Partners and Foster + Partners.”
